Dot would these be similar in taste and texture to Scottish oatcakes?

A little similar but Scottish oatcakes are made from oatmeal as opposed to rolled oats. The Scottish ones are also drier and not so sweet. Here are the traditional Scottish ingredients.  I did have hotels at one stage of my life and the Scots used to bring me oat cakes when they came on holiday. They were not exactly the same in different regions so I expect each has their own interpretation. They used to remind me of the oat blocks that the British Army were issued with in their compo rations. Anyone who has been in the British Army will know what I am talking about. The link below will give you more traditional Scottish recipes should you be interested.
Teacup of medium oatmeal
Teacup of plain flour
Half teacup of milk
Tablespoon of soft brown sugar
3 oz butter or margarine
Level teaspoon salt
Level teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)

Thank you DD, both recipes look like something I'll try.
 I lived in north of Scotland for a couple of years and got a real taste for the thin oatcakes.
Great with marinated Orkney herrings, and perfect  with  Vegemite & butter.
